Sunday Post: Autumn color and enjoying the sun

Sunday-PostKimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Some of our trees are starting to turn color which I love. Other trees in the area are already losing leaves. We had more rain this week and several roads and bike paths near our rivers are closed. The above photo shows a closed road we often drive on our way home. Our house is near the river, but is on a hill (thank goodness). We had a couple dry days and one part of the day with some sun. I loved seeing the sun after a week of cloudy days. In the above photos Donnie is loving the rare sunny day by rolling in the grass! When it’s raining he really doesn’t want to go outside…lol.

We’re taking care of Donnie for our son for at least another week or two. He’s on the East coast this week. We’re taking Donnie with us when we go to our daughter’s housewarming and birthday party this next weekend.


I’m still working on getting posts scheduled ahead. I visited a few favorite blogs last week, but kept getting interrupted.

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. So many lovely books! I spy a few I’ll be checking out. Donnie is so like my dog. The bit of fall weather we are enjoying keeps him outdoors. The lawn guy should be by for one more mowing before we don’t have to do it again for a while. The grass is a bit tall right now and my dog goes out and rolls in it, making these hollowed out areas. Looks like a monster has been through here. LOL


  2. Nice haul, Loving the fall foliage. Mt favorite tree which usually sports a crimson red leaf hasn’t turned due to lack of sunlight and is now covered in


    1. A lot of the trees in our area aren’t showing red foliage this year either. We’ve had snow flurries this afternoon, but nothing is sticking to the ground.


  3. Donnie does look cute rolling on the grass:)). You did have a great haul this week – the one that caught my eye was the Connie Willis book as I love her writing and it’s one I haven’t read. Perhaps I, too, can get it from the library… Have a great week, Jan.


    1. The Connie Willis book is actually three science fiction novellas. I think they will be good. I really like her writing, too.


        1. I’ve started reading the first story and am enjoying it a lot. These are all stories that were published previously so you want to check that as well. I think I might have at least one these on my bookshelf!


    1. We lived in California a few years ago and didn’t see many leaves change color there. I love seeing the leaves change so I’m glad we live in Iowa now.
